As an Austin divorce attorney, because we handle only family law matters, we truly understand the complexities and the relationship dynamics involved, particularly when there are children.
We focus on understanding our client’s goals and develop options for a truly customized approach to family law. We provide comprehensive and realistic advice to our clients, and strive to give our clients the best legal assistance possible through:
- Supportive and practical representation
- Accurate advice on the law
- Goal-specific and innovative legal and non-legal options
- Sensible strategies
- Commitment to negotiation before litigation
As an Austin divorce lawyer, we know that it is typically in the client’s best interest to resolve family law matters outside of the courtroom – and we employ a variety of methods to facilitate this, including negotiation, mediation and collaborative law.
We take pride in the fact that the majority of our client’s cases are resolved out-of-court with satisfactory results. We encourage settlements rather than trials.
We also understand, however, that litigation is often necessary to protect the well-being of our clients and their families. Our experience ensures the effective presentation of each case, and gives our clients the sound legal representation they need to secure their families’ futures. When litigation is warranted, we proceed in a thorough and determined manner.
Whether you’re looking for a collaborative approach to settling your dispute, or require litigation to resolve your matter, Amy Gehm’s experience, compassion and dedication ensure that you have an effective advocate in bringing your family law matters to positive resolutions.
Austin Divorce Attorney, Amy Gehm
Amy Gehm genuinely cares about her clients and provides exceptional guidance and support during what is often an emotionally-charged time in their lives. She has devoted her practice exclusively to family law matters since 1998, has handled thousands of divorce and family law cases, and became board certified in family law by the Texas Board of Legal Specialization in 2002. A skilled and seasoned advocate in the courtroom, Ms. Gehm also is committed to collaborative law and is a charter member of The Collaborative Law Institute of Texas.
Ms. Gehm graduated with a B.B.A. in Finance from the University of Texas McCombs’ School of Business. Amy’s finance degree is instrumental in assisting clients with complex financial issues in a divorce such as determining separate and community property, and valuation issues.
Ms. Gehm graduated from South Texas College of Law, cum laude in 1992. Amy is a fifth generation Texan and has made Austin home since 1986, except for a brief return to Houston for law school. After graduation from law school, she was employed by the Office of the Attorney General, and spent six years with the Law Office of Jennifer Tull before establishing her own practice in 2006. Amy was selected as a Thomson Reuters Super Lawyer in 2022, a Thomson Reuters Rising Star Attorney in 2004 to 2007, and an Austin Monthly Top Attorney in family law for 2020, 2021, and 2022.
A mother of two sons, who graduated from Westlake High School and are both Aggie engineers, Amy draws upon both her professional and personal experience to guide families through difficult and challenging times.
“The divorce process is a very personal, and oftentimes painful, journey. I was extremely fortunate to have had Ms. Amy Gehm as my divorce attorney to guide me through that difficult period of my life. Ms. Gehm is a gifted attorney – she is well-versed in the law, and takes considerable time to do whatever research is needed for each of her individual cases. My case involved a complicated custody dispute that included my need to relocate to another state for employment purposes. Ms. Gehm went well beyond the call of duty to prepare me for every step of my case, and to make sure she had all the evidence she needed to best represent me. She is also very compassionate and completely trustworthy, and was always available with helpful advice. I quickly came to depend upon Amy, and felt confident that she was doing absolutely everything possible to help me and my children. Move cases are very challenging to win. We were successful – and I credit Ms. Gehm for this, and for helping me to find the courage to go through with my case and try and make a better life for myself and my children.
Another mark of a good lawyer is her availability to you after the divorce is over. Ms. Gehm has remained very accessible to me, and I have always felt comfortable contacting her regarding visitation issues and any other legal questions I have had about my divorce decree. She has always responded promptly and with all the information I needed to make decisions. I am so thankful for all of Ms. Gehm’s services, particularly for how gracefully she helped pull me through the entire divorce process and gave me hope that everything would eventually get better. And, she was right! I would strongly recommend Ms. Gehm to anyone who needs legal counsel for a divorce, or who is trying to determine if divorce is the right step for their family.”
